The Pfefferminzmuseum (peppermint museum) in Eichenau

The little Upper Bavarian community of Eichenau was famous in Europe for its excellent mint for a long time. The peaty soil meant this medicinal plant grew with vigour. Cheap mint from abroad flooded the market in the mid 1950s. What remained is the Pfefferminzmuseum (peppermint museum), which provides information about the history, cultivation, harvesting and drying of mint. Plants are also grown on 500 square metres of land – which means authentic Eichenau peppermint tea. Sampling is allowed.
